This is an awesome shade and well worth the money. I purchased one shade to install in my bathroom. Installation was quick and easy. I have had the shade up for almost a year now, and it has held up perfectly. My only complaint is that the color is a little too yellow for my liking. When natural daylight is coming through the window, it looks cream/off-white, but at nighttime it definitely looks more yellow than cream (although it doesn't look that way in my photo-- maybe I am just crazy). Other than the coloring, I am very happy with this purchase!
I have 4 large windows in my family room and connecting formal living room and have found these faux wood blinds add a perfect taylored window treatment to both rooms including great outside curb appeal. I do not have the exact window measurements to match the available lengths. As a result they were hung as exteriors. The only disappointment I have is side pieces were not included with the valance making them look somewhat unfinished. I doubt that too many people notice it but unfortunately I do and missed it when I ordered the blinds. If this is not an issue for you, then you'll be totally delighted with this purchase.
I live in Seattle where having light to let into the house is a premium. I love the functionality of these shades. Fully closed they let filtered light in. Opened top down half way I get to see my craftsman divided window panes. Moving them up part way I don't see people walking down the sidewalk but I can see my rose bushes. I have four 23 inch windows and four 19 inch windows. I watched a youtube video on how to cut the 23 inch down to 19 inch. That may not be for everyone to do but with this house built in 1903 with some of the windows being a non standard size to avoid the expensive custom built options that are available I thought at this price I could take the chance. It has worked out and they are fully operational. One cautionary note. The dictionary definition of alabaster is bright super white but in fact that option in these shades have an yellow brown color so if you want white shades order the white not the alabaster.
